Dental Imaging



Orthopantomogram (OPG)  is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted.


Lateral Cephalogram


A Lateral Cephalogram is a side profile view of the face including your nose and lips.

This Lat Cephalogram is taken to determine the current and future relationship of the mandible (jaw) to the maxilla (cheekbone) including the nature of the patient's bite. The OPG is used by Orthodontists and dentists to work out a suitable treatment plan to correct your smile,  or by oral surgeons to plan facial surgery.


Cone Beam CT

A dental cone beam CT scanner uses x-rays and a computer to produce cross-sectional and 3D images of the upper and lower jaw including all teeth. It provides undistorted and accurate views that cannot be acquired by 2D X-rays. It is non-invasive, safe and quick with precise results.

The greatest advantages of a CBCT over a medical CT is the level of effective radiation dose the patient receives is significantly less lowered by up to 98%. Patient positioning for these examinations involves sitting in a chair of opposed to lying on a bed and moving through a tunnel.
